KVUE NEWS Wins National Murrow Award

Austin, TX -- The Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) has awarded KVUE-TV with the national Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence in electronic journalism. KVUE's Todd Rogenthien received the award in the category of Best Videography for the story, "Le Parkour," reported by anchor Christine Haas. The story focuses on an innovative new exercise trend that involves using Austin's Texas landmarks as an obstacle course. The video montage dramatically follows individuals who have come to Austin from cities across Texas to stay physically fit by running, leaping and tumbling across monument walls, stairs, bridges and other structures.

President and General Manager, Patti C. Smith, states that " Although Todd's dedication to his profession is evident on a daily basis, it is an honor for his work to be recognized on a national basis. To receive national recognition from the Radio-Television News Director Association with an Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an employee. This recognition is well deserved by both Todd and Christine for their collaboration on "Le Parkour."

The RTNDA announced a total of 26 national Edward R. Murrow Awards for 24 television stations in the large and small-market television categories this year. The winners in all categories will be honored at the RTNDA Awards Dinner on October 16, 2006, in New York. The Edward R. Murrow Awards have recognized outstanding achievements in electronic journalism since 1971. They promote the spirit of excellence that Edward R. Murrow made a standard for the broadcast news profession.
